Bossier Sheriff’s Captain Danny Dison is retiring, ending his 44 year career in law enforcement.

Dison, in an emotional farewell at last month’s school board meeting, announced that he is stepping down from his role as school security director, and that BSO Sgt. Adam Johnson will fill his shoes as head of security at Bossier Parish Schools.

Dison joined the Bossier Sheriff’s Office in 2001 and became the head of school security in 2005. He previously served with the Natchitoches Police for five years and the Bossier City Police for 24 years. 
His duties in Natchitoches included patrol and narcotics.

Among his duties at BCPD were patrol, detectives, juvenile, school resource officer and chief.

“One of the first things they asked me, when I announced my retirement,” he said, “is who’s going to take my place. I didn’t have to think long or hard about that at all.
“

Sgt. Johnson’s been working at my side for the last two years.”
Johnson came to the BSO in 2010 after serving at the Bossier City Police Department for 12 years. His duties there included patrol for five years and the Division of Special Investigations (narcotics, street interdiction and vice) for seven years.
